Making a headboard can be a simple project with stunning results.
Dreaming up new bedroom decorating ideas? A headboard can add major impact to a room's decor, no matter the size. In a large bedroom, a headboard can be used to emphasize and fill the space. In a small bedroom, it makes the sleeping area feel extra special without taking up valuable square footage. With a headboard, you also have many options. You can attach one to a bed frame, or mount it directly to the wall. As for design, there are a ton of headboard styles to choose from: midcentury modern, farmhouse, rustic, Moroccan, and more. Even better news? You can create your own one-of-a-kind headboard, whether you have carpentry skills or just like to dabble in simple craft projects.
Don't let the name scare you. Some DIY headboards aren't boards at all. Wall art, room dividers, fabric wall hangings, and even a wall decal can create the look of a headboard, with no carpentry skills required.
